Language, art, history and spirituality emerge within the contemporary ceramic forms of Avital Sheffer. The objects are artefacts of her complex cultural heritage, with designs on the surface of her vessels coming from a library of ancient Semitic, Arabic and Hellenic texts and imagery. Avital grew up in Israel and after migrating to Australia in 1990, she completed a diploma in ceramics in 2003. Her work has been widely collected and is represented in many collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Powerhouse Museum, Ateliers d’Art de France, Manly Art Gallery and Museum and regional galleries across Australia.
